Hello my name is Marie and I've been keeping my own chickens for over 7 years. I was raised on a farm and now I have my own girls and would like to share my experiences with others starting to keep hens of their own. I keep a mixture of large fowl, purebreeds, hybrids and bantams and I also hatch chicks both with my broody hens and with an incubator, and from time to time have birds for sale. I currently have a handsome rooster called Le Bron and my bootilicious beauties Beyonce and Rhianna to name a few. You could say my hen keeping is an addiction, and these little creatures bring so much pleasure and fun to our family and are quite the little characters, as well as delicious fresh eggs every morning. All are pets and part of our family. I run friendly, informative, hands on courses for beginners, advanced, families (including under 5's) and 1-2-1 as well as offering email support following the course. Perhaps you are looking for a birthday treat for an animal loving child or a memorable family experience. I am very flexible and family friendly so please contact me with your requirements. Half term, school holidays & other dates available on request. Kids under 10 years £10, under 5's, free, Family and 1-2-1 rates on request. I look forward to meeting you.

The course gives an introduction to keeping chickens and is suitable for beginners . It covers all you need to know to get started with your own chickens and an insight to the delights of these gorgeous creatures and the fun they bring to your family . It is held in my garden, so bring your raincoat and wellies just in case. I also offer exclusive family courses by arrangement. My flock include Sussex, Marans, Orpingtons, legbars and mixed hybrids.More Info & Booking
